Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
Google is changing according to this Reuters story.
Industry Analyst Jeff Kagan offers comment on this story.
“Over the last decade Google has blown away all expectations and redefined growth. However they must continue to change as well to stay on track. Google has begun a three-part transformation. Think of this as a spring-cleaning of sorts at Google. They took a hard look at the company, the industry and the direction of both and are making some significant changes.” Says tech analyst Jeff Kagan.
“One, its time for what may become a regular spring cleaning. They have gotten into so many different businesses, but only some of them are keepers. The rest are being closed. This thinning out process will become a regular event. More ideas tried. Some of them are successful and some are not.” Says Jeff Kagan.
“Two, management has grown and changed, but different parts of Google should now be under one roof and a different structure. So as the years pass, and as new opportunities emerge, we will see Google doing more of this management and segment rearrangement.” According to Kagan.
“Three is more of an industry-wide event. As the industry changes and redefines itself, Google wants to lead in new areas. They want to start in new segments and see if they are successful. This is the right kind of thinking from the Google perspective.” Says Kagan.
“So we should not look at these restructuring events as a sign of something wrong at Google. Instead I think this is simply a sign that the company wants to change in order to continue strong growth. So far, so good.” Says Jeff Kagan.
